Perfectly positioned on one of Edinburgh’s classic Georgian circular streets overlooking central gardens, Moray Place sits in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. The client’s brief for this project was no small task: to create ‘one of the best apartments in Edinburgh’.
As these images attest, the property has been thoroughly updated to create a generous city apartment space with modern touches that respect and enhance the classic period features including the high mantelpieces, cornicing and Georgian floor-to-ceiling windows. Once the first floor of two New Town houses, these former drawing rooms face south over the stunning private gardens of Moray Place.
The unfinished grande parquet flooring was laid in a herringbone pattern with anodised aluminium inlay trim. The use of all prime boards creates a quiet, uniform look that’s complementary to the property features while lending a sense of scale to the redefined space. The understated beauty of the unfinished oak is resplendent in the natural light while making it suitable for modern city life.
“Russwood’s in-house expertise was greatly appreciated, especially in the early stages. The team was very knowledgeable and kept us on the right track with product choice and what was and wasn’t possible” said Sean Gaule of Somner Macdonald Architects. “Russwood were available throughout the project to answer technical queries which was a great bonus when trying to deliver a high end product and get it right first time round.”
